Boxed up for at least a week!


Well, renovations begin again! This time the parquet floors in our place are getting a sand, stain and 2 coats of poly. Starting.. sometime today. So the past couple of days have been spent packing up everything in the living room, dining room and den (aka MY STAMP SPACE). and moving into the kitchen and bedrooms. Once those floors are done, everything gets moved back into those rooms so they can re-finish the floors in the bedrooms and hallway. *phew*. We will be living out of suitcases for a week. And yes, cry with me girls... I had to pack all my stamping stuff!

I DID however, meet 3 lovely ladies last night. We met at Cafe Demetre in Mississauga for desert & coffee/tea. Yum-O! We all met on SCS and a few days ago we decided, heck, lets meet up! And what a great idea it was. I haven't laughed so hard with a bunch of girls in so long and couldn't have asked for a better group to spend 3 hours with!

Teresa is hosting a swap on SCS - Make new friends & Keep the Old. Very appropriate dontcha think?
Diana is hosting her very first swap too - Fancy Folds
And you can visit Chrystine's blog to see the beautiful card she made us, and dare I say it? A picture!

Now I had brought my laptop to work today and the camera to upload a picture, but I realized that I have no idea where my USB key is, and therefore, I can't upload the pic.... GRR..... So.. you'll just have to find Chrystine's pic on her blog1 At least till I can upload the pic!

Thanks to these three ladies, I had a fantastic time!

Thank you for all the lovely gifts you brought. I am still in awe of your generosity. I just love those little footsies that you have available for purchase here http://icraft.ca/naturliche I enjoyed the aroma all the way home and will indulge ASAP!

Glad you had a fun time!

If you hear muffled cries, you know it's the stamps hoping to be rescued from their cardboard coffins. (teehee! I must be in the mood for H'ween already! LOL!)

That's how I felt when I was gone - eek! But at least I had stuff to distract me.

Lovin' the new blog design - I need to get a bit fancier, I think...
